Rice burger

Sweat: 8%

Rice burger is nothing new. According to Wikipedia, it was first introduced in a Japanese restaurant in 1987. But my first contact with it was only some years ago when MosBurger, a Japanese fast food restaurant chain, opened in Hong Kong. It was the best burger I had. Since there is no MosBurger in the UK, the only thing I can do is to replicate it at home. Although it does not look very much alike the rice burger by MosBurger, I still find it very tasty.

Assembling the rice burger is easy. On the serving plate, lay a rice patty,  lettuce slice, a piece of teriyaki chicken, teriyaki sauce, and another rice patty. 


2cups Japanese rice
Spring onions (optional)
2pieces Chicken thighs 
2tbsp Soy sauce
1tbsp Mirin
1tsbp Sake
1tsbp Sugar


1. Cook the rice in the rice cooker according to package instructions.
2. Whilst waiting for the rice to cook, you can start preparing the teriyaki chicken. Debone the chicken thighs. Heat a pan with oil. Pan fry both sides of the chicken thighs until almost cooked. In a small bowl, mix soy sauce, mirin, sake and sugar. Add the mixture to the chicken. Simmer and thicken liquid to sauce.
3. Chop onions and add to the cooked rice. You can skip this step if you prefer plain rice patties. Form rice into a ball and flatten it. You can either make round patties by hand or with the help of a food ring. Heat oil in a non-stick pan, add rice patties. Fry both sides and slightly brush the patties with soy sauce. 
4. Assemble the burger according to the photo instructions above.
